In “Choices” by Susan Kerslake and “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury, the authors suggest that a person can change based solely on their needs, and question their ability to stay loyal or betray. In “Choices” and “The Veldt” the comparison in what led to the betrayals is very similar, along with who betrayed the characters. In “Choices” Peggy, the main character, has a decision to make, and she ends up making one that is not in her best interest. Perhaps the wrong decision was made because “[She] only [has] a little while to make up her mind.” Similarly, in “The Veldt” the parents of George and Lydia, decided to raise their kids to grow up in a modern and technology based home because “Nothing is to good for [their] children.” Although Peggy and the parents were just thinking about the happiness of their loved ones, they did not think about how they would be affected by their decisions. Similarly, betrayal was caused to the characters because of decisions they had made beforehand and in a way those decisions led to betrayal.
“Identity cannot be found or fabricated, but emerges from within when one has the courage to let go”- by Doug Cooper. Circumstances, experiences and society are factors in an individual’s life which contribute to the formation of their identity. Identity is not found, instead, it’s made by conflicts, hurdles, societal pressures and obstacles in one’s life which come together in harmony to create one’s identity in its purest form. How individuals act and respond to challenging circumstances determines their values, goals and beliefs, thus, forms them as a whole. In the text name “The Shining Houses” by Alice Munro, a character named Mary experiences stresses in her life which attribute to not only her individuality but to her development as a character as the story progresses.

It can determine our future and the time would already be gone after we realised what happened to us. Just like in The Giver, a book written by Lois Lowry emphasizes this point in her book. The book is about a boy who is different then all of his community members and realizes how much much he was missing out on real life. Thus Lois Lowry makes us realize how important some themes are. The themes are importance of memories in or lives, following the rules of a community blindly and without interpretting the rules, and finally how an idividual is important to our world.

The theme of “Choices” by Nikki Giovanni is that she has to make do with what she’s got. For example, in the poem, it states,” since i can’t go where i need to go then i must go where the signs point,”(Page 195). This connects to our theme because she has tried to do what she wants, but each time, she gets drawn back so she tries to make do with what she has. Another example would be when the poem says,” when i can’t express what i really feel i practice feeling what i can express,”(Page 195). This is relevant to the theme because she is not allowed to express her real feelings so she tries to express the ounces of happiness she has.
In the process of bearing and raising a child, two people must come together and contribute both genetics and personality traits to this blank canvas of a person in order to create who they are. However in this process traits can be lost or gained, some are more prominent than others, and as you experience the influence of others and go throughout life your family begins to impact you less and less as it is diluted from a passion burning inside of you. Throughout the majority of my life, I heard of no others lives other than my own. Whenever my family would visit other family members their situations would not be much different. They either dropped out of high school or barely finished it and passed their time by working near minimum wage work
We have nothing in common. However, on my first day, when I arrived at Camp Sunshine, the staff members immediately accepted me like family.

As the Mormon mother explains to Harper in her
